The captivity of orcas has got to stop. Tilikum has served his time for far too long now. Let him retire in Keiko's sea pen in Iceland. Since the tragic death of Dawn Brancheau Tilikum has been kept isolated in a concrete tank far too small for his size. Does SeaWorld really provide him with the proper care he requires? The only propose Tilikum serves SeaWorld today is as a living reproduction machine. This is no life for any animal, especially not for such an intelligent and social one. Let Tilikum go!
Free Tilly! Transfer him to Keiko's sea pen in Iceland to live out his life in a better environment. Since Keiko's release the pen has remained unused. We humans caught Tilly when he was very young, he has never lived a life of freedom and could never survive in the wild on his own. He was ripped from his familiy before he learned the necessary life skills of an orca. Mankind took that from him, it is our responsibility to provide a better life for him now! Let him live in Iceland with continued human support. It is not his fault the way he is now, we are the ones to blame, so we owe it to him to give him a better, more natural home.
For the future: Is it morally justifiable to continue to use these highly intellligent animals in the ways we do, capturing them to perform for our amusement?
